Welcome to MegaPong World Tournament!

Have you ever dreamed of a well done pong with cool graphics, hyper-realistic sounds and killer music? Now, you've got it, and best of all - it's free!

What is Pong?

Pong was the first electronic video game EVER! So... it's really a classic! This game is kind of electronic Ping-Pong. Each player controls a "paddle" and uses it to hit the ball.

What is the MegaPong World Tournament?

The year is 2010... A mad scientist has captured the last two specimens of a rare animal species. He has threatened the whole world to kill the animals if no one beats him at his favorite game: Pong! So, he's organized a worldwide tournament and you are invited. You were one of the best players in the late 70's and the US government is counting on you to save the day.
